The road to the Aricha washing station
As soon as you pass the city of Dilla, you’ll notice the road roughening. A bumpy A8 highway that feels like a country-side mountain bike trail takes you to the Aricha mountains. Then a curly, rocky drive leads you to the gate of Aricha washing station. The famous Naga Singage mountain looms over the station. The Wogida river creates a continuous serene rush of water, only interrupted by singing Gedeo women stirring parchment and coffee cherry.
If you’re looking for floral and complex-tasting Yirgacheffe’s, Aricha is the place. The recently revived washing station collects coffee cherries from Yirgacheffe’s most potent coffee forests. The washing station provides an income for surrounding communities. And coffee roasters find the finest natural and washed grade-1 Yirgacheffe’s on the market.
Coffee in Aricha
The Yirgacheffe coffee taste enjoys worldwide recognition. And the Aricha coffees are no exception. The bright citric acidity, floral brilliance, and chocolate/peachy undertones only start to describe what Aricha brings to the table.
Within the Aricha kebele, we often see these varieties pop up: Wolisho, Kurume, and Dega. And then there’s a pile of unidentifiable local landrace varieties which add to the mystery of the Yirgacheffe coffee taste.
